This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing tliis resource, we liave taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 
We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain fivm automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attributionTht GoogXt "watermark" you see on each file is essential for in forming people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liabili^ can be quite severe.

A GREAT HISTORY OF A GREAT PEOPLE 

AN EPOCH MAKING WORK COVERING A PERIOD 
OF ABOUT FOUR THOUSAND YEARS 

PROF. HEINRICH GRAETZS 

HISTORY OF THE JEWS 

THE MOST AUTHORITATIVE AND COMPREHENSIVE 

HISTORY OF THE JEWS IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE 

HANDSOMELY AND DURABLY BOUND IN SIX VOLUMES 

Contains more than 4000 pages, a Copious Index of more than 8000 Subjects, and 

a Number of Good Sized Colored Maps. 

SOME ENTHUSIASTIC APPRECIATIONS 

DIFFICULT TASK PERFORMED WITH CONSUMMATE SKILL 

*K}raetz's 'Geschichte der Juden' has superseded all former works of its kind, and has been 
translated into EngUsh, Russian and Hebrew, and partly into Yiddish and French. That some 
of these translations have been edited three or four times— a very rare occurrence in Jewish 
literature — are in themselves proofs of the worth of the work. The material for Jewish history 
being so varied, the sources so scattered in the literatures of all nations, made the presentation 
of this history a very difficult undertaking, and it cannot be denied that Graetz performed his 
task with consiimmate skill."— TA* ytwhh Encythpedia. 

GREATEST AUTHORITY ON SUBJECT 

''Professor Graetz is the historio^pher pmr txtelUuce of the Jews. His work, at present the 
authority upon the subject of Jewish History, bids fair to hold its pre<«minent position for 
some time, perhaps decades."— Pri/«<« le Indtx Folum*. 

MOST DESIRABLE TEXT-BOOK 

''If one desires to study the history of the Jewish people under the direction of a scholar 
and pleasant writer who is in sympathy with his subject, because he is himself a Jew, he should 
resort to the volumes of Graetz."— 3^vi«w •/%««<«»« (New York).

PEEPACE 

The first place in this preface is due to those through 
whose cordial co-operation the book became a possibility. The 
two Directories of Jewish Organizations in the United States, 
which make up the bulk of the present issue of the American 
Jewish Year Book, could not have been compiled without 
the assistance of the scores of individuals who willingly and in 
some instances voluntarily assumed the task of completing 
the list of organizations previously available in cities and 
towns throughout the country. 

To one who, like the undersigned, has participated in two 
compilations of Jewish Directories, the more widespread co- 
operation elicited by the second undertaking is testimony to a 
heightened sentiment of solidarity among American Jews, 
a share in producing which, it is not too much to say, may be 
claimed by the first Directory, of seven years ago. On the 
other hand, the second attempt herewith made to marshall 
the forces of American Jewry, is ocular demonstration of 
the need for further and completer organization, to which the 
data here presented, in spite or because of their inade- 
quacy at some points, will again, it is hoped, contribute 
their share. 

It would be impossible to enumerate here the names of all

VIII PREFACE 

who have put time into these Directories, as well as intimate 
knowledge of Jewish affairs, in larger or smaller sections of 
the country. Whole states were revised by some, large cities 
were reported on by others, or proper, well-informed indi- 
viduals were secured to canvass districts and towns, and 
previous investigations undertaken with other ends in view 
were put at the disposal of the Editor for the purposes of the 
Directory. All these helpers and well-wishers must seek 
their reward in the consciousness that they have added to 
the completeness of a needed reference book, and in the assur- 
ance herewith given them that the Jewish Publication 
Society is cognizant and appreciative of their unselfish 
labors. 

Here only those agencies can be mentioned by name which 
diminished the heavy financial burden assumed by the Jewish 
Publication Society in this enterprise. The Baron de 
Hirsch Fund, interested in the problem of distribution of 
immigrants to smaller Jewish centres; the National Confer- 
ence of Jewish Charities, whose eflBciency depends upon a 
knowledge of all societies that can be converted into co- 
operating branches in its important work ; the American Jew- 
ish Historical Society, looking upon statistics as the raw 
material of history; and a couple of local organizations in- 
clined to further Jewish work of promise — these were so con- 
vinced of the desirability of the undertaking that they re- 
sponded generously to the appeal for pecuniary aid. If they 
had needed a further argument as to the utility of a revised 



PRBFACB IX 

Directory, it might have been supplied by the fact, that the 
Bureau of the Census of the United States, in pursuance of 
its charge to collect the statistics of religious bodies, urged a 
Jewish inquiry and pledged its support to it. The autono- 
mous character of Jewish congregations in the United States, 
and the absence of a central federation of Jews, make the col- 
lection of Jewish religious statistics tantamount to the com- 
pilation of a Directory. It was thus recognized by the De- 
partment of Commerce and Labor that it would be a saving 
of energy for the two purposes to be served by one and the 
same inquiry. 

Of the Directories themselves, not much need be said here 
in addition to what is contained in the Introduction (pp. 
21-24). The present investigation was based upon the lists 
appearing in the American Jewish Year Book for 5661, 
and upon material gathered, day by day, from newspapers and 
other available sources, during the seven years^ interval that 
has since elapsed. An asterisk has been prefixed to para- 
graphs that have not been derived from an officer of the 
organization listed, or through someone directly in touch 
with it or its oflScers. But official sources are not neces- 
sarily the only authentic sources. The starred paragraphs 
are for the most part based on newspaper reports, which, 
framed in all probability by someone authorized to speak for a 
society, cannot be condemned out of hand as unreliable. 

Two pitfalls are inherent in this method of keeping statis- 



X PREFACE 

tical material up to date. Some organizationB^ especially in 
the smaller towns, never appear in the public prints, and thus 
they may escape the keenest observer's notice. On the other 
hand, in the populous centres, the birth of an organization is 
apt to be heralded publicly, not seldom with a blare of trum- 
pets, but it is permitted to die a quiet, neglected death. To 
the end that such dry wood might be eliminated, the lists in 
the larger cities, after two attempts had been made to reach 
every organization through the mails, were put into the hands 
of canvassing agents, who were instructed to trace all the 
societies mentioned and report upon their present status. 
Where they did not succeed, it remains for some instructed 
mourner to perform the last rites by notifying the Editor 
of the demise of his organization. 

On the^whole, the ideal of a complete and accurate Direc- 
tory applying to so large an area as the present work covers, 
can be approximated only with the help of kindly, construc- 
tive critics, who each in his town or district will look for 
omissions and errors, laying up the material by which the 
ones may be supplied and the others corrected in a possible 
future revision. The Editor therefore ventures to express 
the hope, that the Directories will be found useful enough to 
awaken the desire for a more perfect list in all who refer to 
them, and that, with this in view, they will make such con- 
tributions from their local knowledge of Jewish affairs as 



PREFACE XI 

every one has it in his power to make. Criticism and co- 
operation from all parts of the country are invited, and cor- 
respondents are assured beforehand of the gratitude and ap- 
preciation of those connected with the undertaking.

DIEECTOEY OP JEWISH OEQANIZATIONS IN THE 

UNITED STATES 

The inquiry resulting in the two Directories in this issue 
of the American Jewish Yeae Book^ the Directory of Jew- 
ish National Organizations and the Directory of Jewish 
Local Organizations, in the United States, extended over a 
period of six months, from January 15 to July 15, of this 
year (1907). This explains why in some cases the officers 
given are not the last elected. Changes in local organizations 
occur so rapidly that names of presidents and secretaries 
furnished on the last of the dates mentioned may no longer 
be correct when this book leaves the press. 

The branches of the National Organizations, where such 
are enumerated, were obtained direct from the headquarters 
of the central body. In the Local Directory, every organi- 
zation, unless it responded to the first request for data, was 
addressed twice with a circular letter enclosing blanks {qiies- 
Uonnairesy. Some were addressed oftener, first through one 
and then another of their officers. In upward of forty of 
the larger cities, canvassing agents were employed. In many 
others the interest of prominent persons was enlisted, and 
their assistance was accorded the Editor to a generous degree. 
In spite of these various efforts to obtain guaranteed reports, 
to which must be added a mass of personal correspondence 
with individuals in all parts of the country, it proved im- 
possible to secure official data in all instances. Indirect in- 
formation, taken from newspaper accounts or other second- 
ary sources, that is, derived in any way except from some one 



22 AMERICAN JEWISH TEAR BOOK 

presumably authorized to speak for a given organization, is 
marked with an asterisk (*). 

The Directory of National Organizations is arranged 
alphabetically by the names of the Organizations, and the 
branches of each alphabetically by towns. The Directory of 
Local Organizations is alphabetic by States, and in each 
State the arrangement is alphabetic by towns. The organiza- 
tions of a town are grouped alphabetically under the follow- 
ing headings : I. Congregations ; II. Charities ; III. 
Mutual Benefit Societies (Sick and Death Benefit So- 
cieties, Kranken Unterstiitzungsvereine) ; IV. Educational 
Societies; V. Miscellaneous Organizations: Literary^ Musi- 
cal^ Social^ Civic^ Athletic^ and Military Clubs, Com- 
munal Organizations, and Labor Unions ; VI. Cemeter- 
ies. Under New York City three additional headings will be 
found : Communal Eeligious Societies ; Communal Fed- 
erations, and Communal Buildings. 

It is important to note, however, that the divisions over- 
lap each other to an extent defying classification and analy- 
sis. The Congregations are often Mutual Benefit Socie- 
ties, especially in New York City; or Free Loan Societies 
(Gemilat Hasodim) are attached to them, as particularly in 
Chicago; or they have Sick Benefit (Bikur Holim), Burial 
Society (Hebra Kadisha), » or Friendly Inn (Haknosat 
Orhim) features; or they do educational work, not only in 
their religious schools. Sabbath schools, and Talmud Torahs, 
but also through industrial classes, immigrant classes in 
English, and Hebrot of various sorts, Hebra Shas (for the 
study of Talmud), Hebra Mishnayat (for the study of the 
Mishnah), or Hebra Tehillim (for the study of the Psalms), 
etc. Again, the charities are largely educational in charac- 



JEWISH ORGANIZATIONS ' 23 

ter, as, for instance, the Sisterhoods maintaining Kinder- 
gartens and classes of all sorts, not to mention the Orphan 
Asylums. There are clubs, too, like many of the Young 
Men's Hebrew Associations, that are educational and, in so 
far as they form neighborhood centres, charitable in their 
purposes and achievements. 

The transliteration of the names of organizations, from 
the Hebrew, Qerman, Eussian, Polish, and other languages, 
is in the main that of the society furnishing the informa- 
tion. But to render the Directory of New York City in 
particular easily available, the cultural and historical pur- 
poses subserved by this scheme of transliterations had to yield 
to the reference purposes, and a slight modification of the 
rule in the direction of uniformity had to be adopted 
where names are duplicated and multiplied in varying or- 
thographies. For instance Bene, Bne, B'ne, Benai, Bnai, 
B'nai, and Bnee, all appear as Bene, though when it was 
known that a congregation or society had a seal or an official 
designation, its own orthography was joined in parentheses 
to the other. Shaabb Tefillah is spelled according to the 
system adopted in the book; Shaabay Tefila is the form 
used by one congregation, and it appears in parentheses. 

In "New York, too, a rather extensive system of cross- 
references had to be made use of, to facilitate the finding of 
organizations known under two names, by their formal He- 
brew name, or by the name of the town in Europe from 
which the majority of their members hail. 

All descriptive additions prefixed to the names of congre- 
gations, as the word Congregation itself, Temple, Hebra, or 
Kahal Kadosh, with its abbreviations and variations, etc., 
are placed after the name proper. 



24 AMERICAN JEWISH YEAR BOOK 

Hebra Kadisha as the name of a society for burial pur- 
poses appears under Hebra (or Chebrah, etc.). 

The population data are based upon estimates made by 
many of those who filled out questiarmaires regarding organi- 
zations in behalf of which they had been addressed. When 
the estimates for a given place varied, the position of the 
correspondents in their communities determined the choice.
